two mowers one bagger? (for now)

got a 60"lesco Ztwo And a 10 year old Cub Commercial 48" hydro / I am thinking of getting a 6.2 for my Lesco Z for grass and leaves could it be easily mounted to my Cub with an appropriate bracket? THAT would be sweet! debating a collection system (peco or lesco) vs accelerator / leaning toward acceleratore (simplicity and cost) what do you think Pete?

If your Cub has a fabbed commercial deck (not a stamped sheet metal deck) you should be able to buy the bagger for the lesco and put it on the cub as well. Use GCLE or GCLEXL. Call me and I will send you an extra bracket.

John is right on the capacity for the XL. The smaller regular size catcher is 4.15 for the catcher and 3.4 cu ft for the extender. The XL is 6.2 catcher cap., 4.8 for the extender. Multiply Cu Ft *.8 for conversion to bushels (6.2 Cu ft = 5 bushels). Grass weighs 7-12 lbs per cubic foot depending on moisture content. If you have a stamped deck cub, you would need a seperate catcher for it. I think the stamped deck has an opening about 17 inches long and 5.5 inches deep.

PS- I will be out of town until monday-

very nice

OK lesco wants 475 for the 6.2 - seems reasonable - but they don't have the leaf extension - at least not that i can find - i love lesco - they are great and i will get the thing there if i can convince myself to spend the money - but how much is the extension and i can get it at Accelerator dot com?
